Panter

by

Panter, de kroonprins van het koninkrijk Panteria, kruipt uit de ladenkast van kleine Christine na de dood van haar kat. Er ontspint zich een spel van verleiding tussen de charmeur en zijn prooi. In de langverwachte opvolger van De liefhebbers dompelt Brecht Evens ons onder in een verwarrende kinderlijke wereld waar verbeelding alles mogelijk maakt. Kleurrijk en speels maar ook ongemakkelijk en beklijvend.

    Okay, first of all, just feast your eyes on that cover for a minute. Notice how it manages to be both busy and colorful without being overwhelming or muddy. That's not nearly as easy to accomplish as ...

    The art in this volume is absolutely stunning. Evens goes through a variety of styles of panther, and his illustrations are vivid and fluid. He captures motion exceptionally well, and his use of colou...
